Rare Please

Animal rights campaigners have overlooked the rather tasty Japanese delicacy ankimo

Published on December 26th 2011.

Rare Please

THE rather zealous campaign to stop Fortnum & Mason selling fresh foie gras may have overlooked another rare delicacy – the Japanese ankimo – the liver of monkfish, rubbed with salt and marinated in sake. It has been a speciality at Golders Green’s Café Japan all month. Obviously with only so many monkfish about, the delicacy is rare enough, plus monkfish is a bottom-feeder and therefore subject to the very un-enviromentally friendly tactic of trawling off the ocean floor which disturbs all the embryonic marine fauna.

However, here at Confidential we have to say they both taste very good… if you know where to get them.
